Al-Shabaab Terrorists Post Bounty for President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – 10 Camels for Obama and 20 Chickens for Clinton.

WASHINGTON, June 9- A Somali Islamist militant group is offering rewards of chickens and camels for information on the whereabouts of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, mocking the millions of dollars the United States has offered for leaders of the al Qaeda affiliate.

Fuad Muhammad Khalaf of the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement in Somalia made the offer after Friday prayers, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant organizations. "Whoever reveals the hideout of the idiot Obama will be rewarded with 10 camels, and whoever reveals the hideout of the old woman Hillary Clinton will be rewarded 10 chickens and 10 roosters," he said, according to SITE.

On Thursday, the U.S. State Department offered a reward of $5 million each for the whereabouts of Khalaf and three associates, as well as $7 million for information about al Shabaab founder and commander Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed. A bounty of $3 million was offered for the location of two other officials of the organization. Al Qaeda said in February the al Shabaab group, which was branded a terrorist organization by the U.S. government in 2008, had joined its ranks. MORE FROM THIS SOURCE.
